A sea of machines waiting at the gym floor, and all promise to get you the best possible training. Rest assured that both the tape, proven quality as the newest, elliptical trainer, burn calories effectively develop resistance levels and improve your cardiovascular fitness. To achieve these objectives, a simple walk in either machine will not serve, but if you work hard, any team will help you reap the rewards of mega fitness.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate-intense cardiovascular exercise weekly to stay healthy and reduce the risk of chronic disease, including heart disease. A hike from 3.4 to 4 mph on the treadmill, 30 minutes a day, five times a week, helps you achieve this goal, as do five sessions of 30 minutes on the elliptical that raise the heart rate 50 70 percent of its maximum. If you want to work harder, you can start with a minimum of 75 minutes of vigorous activity weekly. A session tape or elliptical, to take you between 70 and 85 percent of your maximum heart rate, can meet this recommendation.
You could exhaust yourself at the gym in an effort to burn calories. Your daily calorie burn increases metabolic rate, so you can consume more calories and control your weight. Burn calories also can help you lose pounds if you regularly eat less than you burn. A 155-pound person burns about 335 calories in a rigorous session elliptical. The same person would need to run 5.2 miles per hour on the treadmill to get the same burn in 30 minutes. A 2010 study of “Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research” confirmed that when participants work in the same intensity on the treadmill and the elliptical burn roughly the same number of calories.
